Move folders in user mailbox in exchange 2010 database without access to OWA or Outlook
Posted on 2014-11-24
We recently asked for people in our company to clean out their mailboxes of old items. One person somehow had created all of their folders in the deleted box. So when they clicked empty deleted items they lost all of their folders. We can go into the dumpster and recover all of the items but not the folder structure which is a pain since there was near 100 folders. I can access our backup of exchange on storagecraft and pull it up in a virtual enviroment but for some reason OWA and outlook access are not working, something seems to be screwy with IIS. I can do all commands I need to via powershell, so does anyone know of a way to move folders in a exchange database via powershell? I have tried to export the contents as a PST but this also removes the folder structure since they were in the deleted box. All other folders come out fine. Is there any tool that can connect and do this? Open to any options at this point.
